Eddie's Farm: August 12

Apologies for the first of these in quite some time. Let's get to it, and pretend it never happened.

Oklahoma City (54-66)

OKC was all over Colorado, at one point scoring seven unanswered runs, for a 9-2 win. Lucas Harrell got the start, and didn't get ejected, or pulled before the 3rd inning, throwing 7IP, 11H/2ER, 5K:0BB (ERA: 2.67). Sam Gervacio and Xavier Cedeno each got three outs, with no hits, and 2Ks.

Brett Wallace continues his mastery of Triple-A with a 3x3, BB, 2RBI game. Jake Goebbert - called up ten days ago - was 2x4 with a double and an RBI. Drew Locke was 1x3 with 3RBI.

Man of the Match: Lucas Harrell

Corpus (42-75)

Game 1: Corpus loses to Arkansas, 4-2. Brett Oberholtzer took his first loss in the organization with 4IP, 2H/2ER, 6K:3BB. Arcenio Leon allowed 2H/2R (1ER), 0K:1BB, and Blake King allowed a walk in 1IP.

Emerson Frostad hit a solo homer, and added a single, to account for two of the Hooks' three runs. Kody Hinze had your other. David Flores provided the other RBI.

Man of the Match: Emerson Frostad.

Game 2: Arkansas got the first five runs, and beat Corpus 6-2. Erick Abreu lasted 1.1IP, allowing 5H/5ER, 0K:3BB. Jonnathan Aristil allowed 3H/1ER, which was given up by Henry Villar, who allowed two hits and two wild pitches.

Adam Bailey was 2x3 with two doubles and an RBI in his Double-A debut; Jon Gaston was 2x2 with a double and a walk.

Man of the Match: Adam Bailey

Lancaster (43-74)

Lancaster got themselves rocked, 8-2 at the hands of San Jose. Jose Cisnero allowed 7H/5ER, 5K:2BB, 3HR in 4IP; Shane Wolf threw 3IP of long relief, giving up 2H/1ER, 4K:0BB, HR; Kyle Greenwalt had two baserunners but no runs, and Pat Urckfitz' tailspin continues with 3H/2ER in 1IP.

Jonathan Singleton (3B) and Jonathan Meyer (2B, RBI) had two hits each; Austin Wates was 1x2 with 2BB. Alex Todd made his High-A debut after 33 games in Greeneville, and went 1x2 with a double after striking out for Jio Mier - who was apparently inexplicably tossed.

Man of the Match: Jonathan Meyer

Lexington (51-66)

Augusta scored the first six runs of the game, and then the last three for a 9-1 win over the Legends. Ruben Alaniz gave up 8H/6ER, 2K:1BB in 2.1IP; Alex Sogard threw the next 4.2IP, allowing 5H/2ER, 5K:2BB; Juan Minaya gave up 3H/1ER, 4K:1BB in 2IP.

Delino DeShields was 2x4 with a double, and Telvin Nash had your only XBH, with a double.

Man of the Match: Telvin Nash, who also had an outfield assist.

Tri-City (24-31)

Game 1: Despite allowing two runs to Hudson Valley in the top of the 1st, Tri-City got five back in the bottom half on their way to a 9-4 win. Adam Champion threw 6IP, 3H/2ER, 5K:2BB, as did Kristian Bueno, but without the strikeouts or walks, in 1IP.

Rafael Valenzuela was 3x4 with two doubles and 3RBI; Miguel Arrendell (BB) and Ryan McCurdy (2B, 3RBI) had two hits each. Chris Epps and Drew Muren were both 0x1, but with 3BB each.

Man of the Match: Rafael Valenzuela

Game 2: And Tri-City completes the sweep with a 2-1 win. Undrafted free agent Andrew Walter allowed an unearned run in 3IP, with 5K:2BB in 3IP, but Travis Blankenship picked up the win with 3IP, 2H/0ER. Ryan Cole got his 8th save of the year.

Neiko Johnson was 2x3 with a double; Rafael Valenzuela got a double as the ValleyCats win despite no extra-base hits, and no RBIs.
